Key themes arising from the comparative research across the countries include:

  • Better housing choices to meet the needs and preferences of older people;
  • The importance of housing and living conditions and their links to
    social and health care delivery and in prompting ageing-in-place;
  • The potential for engaging communities in effective and inclusive
    models of social care delivery to support healthy ageing, with reference
    to the different policy contexts of the three partner countries;
  • Design alternatives for age-friendly housing environments that
    support ageing-in-place, independence and enable effective, inclusive
    and easily accessible health and social care for older people;
  • The efficiency and affordability of financial innovations for the
    long-term living arrangements of older people and propose delivery for
    an ageing population through development of funding options and
    associated proposals; and
